2013 Eagles offseason: Offensive line in flux

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Eagles are set to undergo a lot of changes this offseason, especially along the offensive line. What does the future hold for Danny Watkins, Todd Herremans, and Co.?

The Philadelphia Eagles are poised to undergo some big changes during the 2013 NFL offseason, especially along the offensive line. Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer continued his series on the Eagles' roster by taking a look at the interior offensive linemen. He points out that while the team feels comfortable with Eric Mathis at left guard, there are questions about Danny Watkins at right guard.

Danny Watkins has not been productive enough in his first two seasons with the Eagles after the team gambled on him as a 2011 first-round pick. He did not fit well in former offensive line coach Howard Mudd's system and a fresh start might help. The Eagles need to hope that's the case, because Watkins is already 28.

According to Berman, the team may move Todd Herremans from tackle to guard in order to address the position, leaving Watkins out in the cold. There is also a chance that the Eagles target the interior offensive line during the 2013 NFL Draft. Alabama teammates Chance Warmack and Barrett Jones are arguably the best guard and center prospects in their class, respectively.

Berman also lists several names that the Eagles could target in free agency. After finishing 23rd in the NFL last season in rushing, it's clear that something needs to be done up front.
